Is THAT What I Sound Like?

I could hear her little girl imagination from the living room where I sat, taking five minutes to relax after cleaning what felt like the whole house. The sound of her faint whispers traveled down the hallway, her tiny voice changing as she created the characters, playing out the scene in front of her. I…

Summer So Far

I haven’t been around here lately… I’ve been doing, seeing, watching, listening, dining, and making memories. With these people. Suddenly life slowed down and became about sun, swimming, long drives, and yard sales. Where I found these fabulous shoes… We’ve had visits to the hospital after Brian found a Tick on him that had burried…

Things I Learned Last Week

It’s only Monday but with the drizzle and gloomy sky it feels like the day is dragging on. Summer is supposed to be sunshine and swimming. I’m getting a lot out of this summer, spending lots of time with my family, and enjoying making memories. I’m learning things too: 1. Losing weight is not easy,…

That Guy

“Mom, is tomorrow Jesus’ birthday?” “No, babe, tomorrow is Canada Day.” “Who’s that guys name that can see us? “I’m not sure?” “He knows my name and your name and our cats?” “Have I met him?” “NO mom, He see’s us when we’re at walmart” “Did we go to His house?” “Mooooom! He lives in…

Putting Infertility to Rest

It had taken a long time to come to the decision that we had but Brian and I were finally comfortable and ready to move onto that next step. I sat with the phone to my ear listening to it ring into the gynecologists office, my heard pounding harder with every ring, I was actually…

In Like a Whisper

Shhh Did you hear that? It was a whisper. But not quite. It was so quiet I almost didn’t catch it. That’s how you came into my life. Like a whisper. But not really. So quiet I almost didn’t catch you. And then? You were gone. But I knew you were there. Even if no…

That Boy Called Me Fat

Her little blond head bopped up and down as I watched from the picnic table at the park. She had found a friend to play with and was running in circles. I chatted with a friend and kept my eye on her. It was the first warm day, the sun was shining and it was a perfect…
